The first ever anthology of some of the best of Punjabi short fiction, this translated work tells its own tale of the Punjabi immigrant community's valiant struggle in the UK for a cohesive identity.

Rich and resonant, powerful and evocative, the stories abound in images of displacement, at once unsettling and captivating. Though immigration and displacement make up the main thematic tapestry, each story struggles to create its own distinctive metaphor of exclusion and marginality, physical and psychological, all at once.

For here are the exiles, the migrants, the eternal pilgrims of time and space, who are, forever, forced into negotiating a double space, the "in-betweenness", and who tend to make insistent claims upon the reader's imagination as well as his catholic sympathies.

Constantly swinging back and forth across two worlds, one lost and the other yet to be gained, these stories jostle with our hopes, aspirations, disappointments and despair as much as they bring alive the complexity of what it means to be an outsider.
